Email and Call Your State Senator to Support Offshore Wind Legislation TODAY!
The clock is ticking for the Massachusetts legislature to pass a climate bill with bold offshore wind provisions before the end of the session on July 31.
Contact your state Senator and urge them to support a strong offshore wind bill for the Commonwealth. Offshore wind will be the workhorse of our clean energy and decarbonization efforts in Massachusetts—it will likely provide around 50% of our regional grid’s power by 2050. It is crucial that Massachusetts enacts climate legislation with strong offshore wind language to ensure we reach our climate goals 
Take action now to support the responsible development of this critical clean energy resource by contacting your state Senator to help Massachusetts distinguish itself as a national leader in offshore wind. Ask your Senator to urge the conference committee to include a strong offshore wind component in the final climate bill.
Talking points to include in emails and phone messages to Senators:
  • Wind power is key to decarbonizing our economy as quickly as possible so we can meet mandated emissions reductions targets for the Commonwealth
  • Wind power will drive economic opportunity and investment across the region to create a strong, green energy industry and workforce
  • Clean, renewable energy from wind will provide enormous health benefits for all residents and particularly those most impacted by fossil fuel pollution in their communities
  • Collaborative leadership and bold action are needed more than ever to move us forward into a livable future
